Stargirl renewed for Season 2
Staff Reporter | On 07, Jul 2020
Stargirl has been renewed for a second season.
Based on the DC Comics superhero Courtney Whitmore created by Johns and Lee Moder, the show is one of the original shows created for DC’s subscription platform DC Universe. It follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore (Brec Bassinger, School of Rock) as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to take up the legacy of a long-lost superhero team – The Justice Society of America – and stop the villains of the past. DC’s Stargirl also stars Luke Wilson (Old School) Yvette Monreal (Matador), Anjelika Washington (Young Sheldon), Cameron Gellman (Heathers), Trae Romano (555) and Jake Austin Walker (Rectify).
The show, which recently premiered in May in the US, has been snapped up by Amazon Prime Video to stream in the UK this August. Now, a couple of weeks after that acquisition, DC has ordered a second season for the series. It will also move from DC Universe to The CW in the US, where it was previously airing new episodes on The CW a day after their online debut. The show will not be available on DC Universe from its second season, marking the online platform’s ongoing decline in exclusive, original programming – Swamp Thing, one of its launch titles, was notably cancelled. In the UK, however, you can expect Season 2 on Amazon Prime Video once more.
